After four years since the opening of Vistamarestudio, Vistamare will open the new space in Milano with the group show Le voci della sera. The project takes its title from the novel by Natalia Ginzburg and was conceived after a conversation between the artist Rosa Barba and the gallerists Lodovica Busiri Vici and Benedetta Spalletti.
All of the artists received a hard copy of the book, and were invited to respond to its content, to become narrators and to share memories and perspectives. The 19 invited artists interpreted the book in their own personal way, creating a choral story formed of previously un-exhibited and site-specific works.
Participating artists: Mario Airò, Charles Avery, Rosa Barba, Claudia Comte, Joana Escoval, Anna Franceschini, Linda Fregni Nagler, Tom Friedman, Bethan Huws, Mimmo Jodice, Joseph Kosuth, Armin Linke, Polys Peslikas, Public Movement, Eileen Quinlan, Mary Ramsden, Lorenzo Scotto di Luzio, Ettore Spalletti and Haim Steinbach.
The new space – a former tannery located in a liberty building in the Porta Venezia district – is overlooked by a glass dome that lets natural light shine through. The architectural project has been designed by the New York studio Space4Architecture.
